Xperia XZ3 gets its own exclusive Google Assistant commands

Xperia XZ3 gets its own exclusive Google Assistant commands

One of Samsung Bixby’s promises was the ability to control almost every aspect of your phone with voice alone. It didn’t take long for LG to offer those same capabilities in the LG G7 ThinQ but, thankfully, it didn’t reinvent the wheel and teamed up with Google instead to perform those commands through Google Assistant. Now Sony is revealing that it had struck the same partnership and has a few special Google Assistant commands that you’ll only be able to use if you own an Xperia XZ3.

Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Pro bundle announced

Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Pro bundle announced

We've seen a lot of big-name games get a PS4 bundle of some sort, and as of today, we can add Red Dead Redemption 2 to that list. Even though Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't going to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive, the decision makers at Sony have deemed it be a big enough release to receive its own console bundle. Unfortunately, there isn't much to this bundle aside from the fact that it puts the game and a PS4 Pro together in one package.

The game proved to be so popular upon release that it became the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive ever, selling an impressive 3.1 million copies in its first three days of availability.

Xperia XZ3 pre-order comes bundled with Xperia Ear Duo

Given the flood surrounding Apple’s new iPhones and the subsequent rollout of iOS 12, it’s easy enough to forget some of the recent flagship phones that came just days before it. Especially when said flagship phone is a Sony. The Xperia XZ3 debuted last month without much fuss or fanfare, typical of Sony, and it is now finally being made available to US consumers. But while the $900 price tag remains, Sony is throwing it in a bundle to at least soften the blow.

PlayStation Classic challenges Nintendo mini consoles with 20 PS1 games

Today, Sony announced the PlayStation Classic, a new mini console that comes loaded with 20 PS1 games.

Sony Xperia Ear Duo will now tell you who’s calling

Sony, however, is trying to buck that trend with the latest update to its Xperia Ear Duo, making the smart earbuds really smart, whether you’re on Android or iOS.
